Orange Daisy

Here's a card for the Less is More Challenge week 112 where the recipe is to use some BEADS.

I've been dithering all day what to do but decided to go for something bright and summery.......even though it's freezing and white out!   I've used the Oak House Studio Double Daisy set of stamps.  I swiped Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door Distress Inks on my mat and then picked up the ink with the Daisy Palette and stamped that.  I've then stamped the Outline Daisy over the top with Vermillion Archival.   I've added some orange ribbon and added some beads on the ends.  I wasn't sure what sentiment to use - maybe it'll be a Birthday card or a Thank You..... I just hope it brightens someone's day!!

Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments.  Hope you're all keeping safe and warm and that Spring will put in an appearance soon!!
